The capital of the United States, the District of Columbia contains the lion's share of the country's most treasured monuments, memorials, and public museums.
Popular historic sites such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Tomb of the Unknowns are in your itinerary. Get outdoors at Adkins Arboretum and Tidal Basin. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park), Stony Man Mountain Hike (in Luray) and Breezy Point Beach and Campground (in Chesapeake Beach). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, look for all kinds of wild species at Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge, explore the different monuments and memorials at Arlington National Cemetery, and appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Washington DC trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

In April, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
